Mark Steyn and Hugh Hewitt talk about the Sony hack and much more (Free audio.)
In its first year, PodcastOne was happy to snag six major brand advertisers. This year, it landed 36. Pattiz says he expects the podcast category to be worth $100 million next year, with PodcastOne taking the biggest share of it. It’s nowhere close to the $16 billion radio industry. But it might be the future of audio.
THE most terrifying thing in that movie wasn’t the trippy “ride” or the way the kids get punished.
It’s the sight of those four old people squeezed into one bed, doing nothing but eating and sleeping.
Hated that part as a kid and can barely write about it now without wanting to scream.
These fake “Ayn Rand” movie reviews are pretty funny, even though the New Yorker writer (obviously) doesn’t quite “get” Rand.
Bwa ha! Thanks, Ed Driscoll, for that neat blast from the (recent) past.
Mark Steyn: ‘Kathy Shaidle blames the lack of cojones at Sony less on Kim Jong-Un than on the grisly over-lawyering of American life’
Mark Steyn writes:
I made the point to Tommy that, for all the robust attitudinal expressions of American kick-assery, ultimately a liability culture trumps them and kills them. (…)
Your in-house counsel trumps artistic expression. As for the First Amendment, what’s the point of a constitutional protection saying the US government can’t prohibit Americans from seeing your movie if foreign governments can prohibit Americans from seeing your movie?
“I’m fat and I’m proud!”
Besides being fat, they also, for whatever reason, tend to dress rather eccentrically, in vintage hair and makeup.
Basically they are “Garcia” on Criminal Minds but real.
“Any day now,” I always think, “they’re gonna confess that they really hated being so fat and now they’re losing weight.”
And guess what?
IT HAPPENED TO ME: I’m a Body-Positive Feminist and I Had Weight Loss Surgery
But of course:
Ultimately, the same philosophy that allowed me to find peace with my fat body also allowed me to make the decision to have weight loss surgery.
Imagine wasting your life trying to embody a theory.
Poor people volunteer for these tests all the time when it gives them a chance to go on daytime TV.
One bill in the package would allow state officials to use genetic testing to determine parentage without going through the courts. It sets up a method for figuring out who is the father of a child and would even allow a prosecutor to order genetic testing.
John Whetstone, the deputy communications director of the Michigan House, said the state already has laws in place that permit genetic testing to be ordered by a judge, but this proposal would simplify the process by allowing county officials to bypass the courts.
Another proposed bill would allow welfare benefits to be cut off if a father fails to make his child support payments or fights the paternity test.

I’m not saying we should abolish the tradition of Santa Claus. I love the guy and his kooky visits as much as my kids do. In fact, I’m surprised more Jews don’t take him up on the offer. It’s not like he’s dressed as Jesus.
All I’m saying is, having him come by your house is magic enough. Let him leave candies in the kids’ stockings, or maybe some kind of glowing rock that maintains its heat year-round. It could be a different thing every year. What about a salamander? We could leave the tree undecorated and he could make it light up with a splash from his elven wand.
I don’t fucking know. He’s the magic guy. Think of something, Santa.
‘I’m still not sure why half of the French citizens who still have enough couilles left to stand up for their national sovereignty and culture seem to be old Jewish book nerds’
Writes Ann Sterzinger at Taki’s, where the comments should be… interesting…
They can’t ignore him: Suicide has been selling up to 5,000 copies a day. The commoners who are buying it clearly need to be told how wrongheaded they are. So most of Zemmour’s interlocutors in the media—through a combination of leading questions and shouting over him when he tries to answer—do their best to reduce the book’s 544 pages of history and analysis to a handful of disjointed heresies. (…)
Zemmour picks on our poor peaceful Islamist brothers, goes the litany; he thinks patriarchy wasn’t useless to the construction and defense of the nation; and, unspeakable for a French Jew, he dares to entertain the hypothesis that the Vichy government may have surreptitiously saved some of his coreligionists. Every detail of the accepted Holocaust story is now safely carved in stone for leftists, and to rationally examine a word of it means you heart Hitler, so watching people struggle to stop themselves from yelling “anti-Semite!” at Zemmour is horribly funny.
